Guinness Book of World Records requirements are pretty strict, as are the city's health regulations, so the pizza will be all cheese—no additional toppings. Asvadi told us that prep has been going on for a good six months, with the third run through taking place this past weekend."We want to extend the record by 1,000 feet. Really, the most difficult part about all this has been finding a suitable site, because you obviously can't have the pizza taking sharp bends. Finally, we found a racetrack that has a two-mile track without sharp bends, so we can pull off what we need to there."The current record for world's longest pizza was achieved last year in Naples by 250 chefs, and was exactly 1.15 miles long.
The project's website says that "attempting records is an inherent part of anyone's spiritual journey." And everyone knows that making pizza is a spiritual calling.Will Asvadi succeed in his quest for global pizza conquest? Stay tuned: His attempt will take place at the Auto Club Speedway Of California on June 10.
